Wed Apr 05, 2006 5:59 am

Would you go for a Canon lens and a Nikon body?

I would experiment with a D2X and a 70-200 f2.8 L IS USM .
What a combo.

Just get a Nikon 70-200/f2.8 AF-S ED VR and have fun. Probably one of the best non-prime 35mm SLR's pieces of glass out there.

If you could stick a 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS on a Nikon body I'd be all for it. When will Nikon put AF-S on the 80-400 VR?!

I think that is why they brought out the Nikkor AF-S VR 200 - 400 mm F4 G IF-ED as they already have the Nikon AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G ED-IF to cover the shorter focal lengths. Still they have stoped manufacturing all but two film cameras so maybe they have resources to look at something new in that range?

Cheers
Good things take Time.

Thats been my assumption too - awesome lens but way out of my price range.
